Investigation continues into bridge collapse

Investigations are continuing into why a footbridge in North Yorkshire collapsed, causing two men to fall into the river below.

A 65-year-old was taken to James Cook University hospital by Air Ambulance with a head injury and a suspected broken arm.

Another man, in his fifties, was taken by road to Scarborough hospital.

The pair were part of a shooting party at High Askew on the North York Moors.

Air ambulance services called to collapsed bridge

Emergency services were called to a collapsed bridge in the North Yorkshire Moors this afternoon after two men fell into the floodwaters and had to be rescued.

“The Great North Air Ambulance Service was called at 3.20 this afternoon to reports of a bridge collapse in North Yorkshire.

Two men, believed to be among a shooting party, had fallen into the river when the metal footbridge had collapsed.

Both had sustained head injuries.

Although they had been recovered from the water, both were soaked through when our doctor and paramedic team arrived on scene."

“Other emergency services on scene had already prepared the patients for transfer and, after an assessment by the doctor, our crew flew the more seriously injured to James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough.

As well as a head injury, the man, a 65-year-old from the York area, had sustained a suspected broken arm.”
